Cons: After going to the trouble of purchasing a 32-G class 10 card for the camera (the camera reports 117' of recording space)...The camera refused to record any 1080p movies any longer than 9 minutes 59 seconds. Where is this "feature" indicated? *NO WHERE* **AVOID** if you want to record videos long...
Summary: Either people have lower expectations in terms of image quality or I got a lemon. I'm comparing mine to Canon S410 that I also own. Issues with this camera: 1. Camera keeps switching 'scenes' in Auto mode and it's often choosing incorrectly: a) It tries to do tracking when no tracking is required b)...
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a Fujifilm f100 finepix camera that I loved after doing a lot of comparison reading on different models. I seldom ever give any credence to people who write a review after only having the camera for a couple of days, especially when they actually admit in writing that...
Summary: I have a Canon SD1100is and was very pleased with the picture quality. I then purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMCZS7 and was blown away by the quality and picture clarity. But I missed having a small camera like the SD1100 to take to parties etc.
Summary: The 300 HS has good features and takes good photos. However, after about 4 days of use, it has developed numerous small radial dents in the bezel around the lens. This is rather troublesome for long term durability. The camera has been carried in my pocket and has been treated very well.
Summary: I am a big fan of Canon. I have ventured out and bought Pentax and Fuji cameras, but in comparison, the Canons are always better. Until now. I bought this camera to replace my previous one that was going on the blink. I don't blame canon for the longevity..
Summary: I feel like Canon has been putting out products that aren't as well-made as before. I'm going to start with the design. I was glad they've added black in their color variation, but on this particular model the black is dull.
Summary: I've had the Elph 300 HS for a few days now and I must say, it feels perfect in the palm of your hands. The buttons feel great to press and the pictures are as snappy as ever. However, with that said, there are a few concerning flaws of this camera that anyone considering purchasing it should know.
Not a bad little camera but some things need improving
2 April 2011
Summary: I bought this to replace my old A590IS. I also have a good canon HD video camera and a Nikon D40 dslr. I'm going to Florida in a week and wanted a great point and shoot that could do it all. I was going to only use the 300 HS and keep my video camera and DSLR at home.
